courgettesalad

‘fatet hummus’ one dish dinner ..zucchini, greek yogurt, hummus and pine seeds, bourbon peppercorns

 

in arabic, hummus is the name of the grain. i intend to write hummus instead of garbazo beans..for fun. not really. just to clarify the confusion about the famous “hummus” and the garbanzo beans. the first is called hummus bi tahine and the grain is called hummus

this recipe  is a vegetarian one dish dinner. Healthy,easy, and quick. serve warm or very warm. also serve cold or very cold.

without the hummus, serve as a starter or as a side dish

chocolate sauce..100% healthy

almost everybody loves chocolate. although, i have some friends who don’t eat chocolate. i find that strange.

anyway, a chocolate sauce will always add another dimension to so many deserts.

i make this chocolate sauce every time i have guests. i serve it with ice creams, cakes and poached fruits.

very simple to make and healthy conscious. have a look at the ingredients. it is just 30 seconds

bruttimabuoni italiancookies

‘brutti ma buoni’ beautiful italian cookies

the italian cookies name ‘brutti ma buoni’  translates ugly but good. well, i think they are beautiful and very good. they resembles moon stones.

they are baked mainly mid autumn; the harvesting time of the hazelnuts. and all around the year. the most known are prepared with hazelnuts but they could be prepared with almonds as well.

here i am baking them with hazelnuts and adding bit of cacao. they are very simple to make only 3 ingredients  needed

200 g  hazelnuts + (1 Tbsp granulated sugar + 2 tsp cacao)
100g   icing sugar
1         egg white

grill the hazelnuts and peel them..almost.. i like to keep some of the brown peel.

put the hazelnuts in a food processor.

add 1 tbsp of granulated sugar and 2 tsp of cacao.

give them few pulses untill you get one part sort of pwder and the rest big chunks of hazelnuts

then

et voila bruttimabuoni italiancookies

linzertorte

linzer torte.. for christmas

I love this tart because the crust is as important as the filling if it is not more important. traditionally  the crust is thick and very crumbly  with a rich roasted  taste and the filling is blackberry jam.

i am making it with rasberry sort of pudding.

ingredients for the crust:
